Originally, I had something completely different in mind. In fact, I had several different "somethings" in mind. But time got away from me and my first attempts didn't turn out quite like I had planned.
So what's a girl to do?
I decided upon this approach:
Instead of an image of something displaying a certain texture, I decided to add texture to an image.
In this image I have actually added a couple of different textures. I really love this photo of my soccer star. Here's the original (though with a different crop):
But while I truly love this image as it came out of the camera, I think in this case the texture (& processing) give it a completely different feel. I couldn't be happier with this result and it looks even better printed and hanging in my office.
